YTP Book Club: The Monk of Mokha by Dave Eggers

03/14/2019 at 6:15 PM (US/Eastern)
Compass Coffee Chinatown 650 F St NW Washington, DC 20001

Join us in reading the incredible true story of Mokhtar Alkhanshali, a young Yemeni-American entrepreneur living in San Francisco who dreams of resurrecting the ancient art of Yemeni coffee and exporting it to the United States. The book charts his journey navigating the challenges of pitching a business and securing investors, working with Yemeni coffee farmers, and ultimately trying to export product in the midst of a civil war. 

 

Book club discussion will take place on the 20th February, 6:15pm, at the Chinatown branch of Compass Coffee.
